Stephanie M. Sexauer, Wills and Estate Planning Attorney



I initially met Stephanie in 2020 through a mutual business contact. Our first meeting was a Zoom meeting and I remember so clearly, how positive, upbeat and full of energy she was. We agreed to stay in touch and share referrals, and after that meeting, I started introducing Stephanie via email to some of my business contacts, in hopes they might give each other referrals.

It’s amazing how much wonderful feedback I’ve gotten from the professionals to whom I introduced Stephanie. Stephanie is said to be passionate about what she does, very smart and experienced, and a down-to-earth person who is a pleasure to work with.

I am so honored to have Stephanie on the DGS team, and would highly recommend her!
